It's time once again to crown the hottest chef in Austin in Eater's Annual Hottest Chef Competition. Readers have no doubt not yet forgotten Austin's national hot chef victory last year, when chef Kurt "The Irish Chef" Ramborger (pictured above in all his ginger-haired glory) took home the title of Hottest Chef In America.
As always, this year's contest will offer both the underdogs and the clear front runners the chance to battle it out in nail biting heats and final elimination rounds. What's different this year is instead of running the face-offs over a period of two weeks, all voting will take place throughout one action packed day of hotness. That day just so happens to be February 14, Hot Chefs Day.
Before we get to all that sexy excitement, we need your help. Send email@example.com your nominations for the hottest chef in town, along with a good, clear picture or link to an image file of same. Only restaurant chefs currently working in the industry are allowed, and the previous year's winner—in this case, the Irish Chef himself—is not permitted to enter.
Nominations are due one week from today, Monday February 11, after which they will be culled and seeded. Then the games will begin.
